For those of us who are Blizzard nerds, we all know about Starcraft 2 and Diablo 3 and the upcoming Wrath of the Lich King, and of course the allmight all powerful event known as Blizzcon. What got announced however at Blizzcon recently was that Starcraft 2 would be made into 3 seperate games.
How does this effect us as gamers? It means that we gotta buy each game in order to get all 3 races. Basically they are taking the 3 races (Terran, Protoss, and Zerg) and making a single game for each one. By doing this, they hope to make each campaign more “epic” and more focused on that races story. To me, it sounds like a marketing ploy. For example: I prefer to play as Protoss. According to the current release schedule thats gonna be the LAST race to be released, which means I gotta wait to play as them.
This is annoying to me. Also, if I want access to the other races I gotta buy THEIR game. The multiplayer component hasn’t been changed, but they did say apparently that some units would be single player only as they are unique. Regardless, Blizzard has made its choice, and we as gamers are gonna have to live with it.
But I am now offically annoyed.
